Gol Mundial to show all 64 matches from Qatar online and charge one single payment for access

Spanish communications company Mediapro have launched a new OTT platform called Gol Mundial, through which they will provide full coverage of every match at the upcoming Qatar World Cup via live streaming.

The new platform will operate on a DTC (direct to consumer) subscription model and sell a single tournament pass for €19.99, which will grant the subscriber access to every match from World Cup 2022.

After winning the Spanish broadcast rights to the Qatar World Cup, Mediapro have entered into sublicensing agreements with traditional TV networks Movistar+ and RTVE.

RTVE is the public broadcaster of the country and will show 20 matches from Qatar, including all games involving the Spanish national team, having paid a reported €35m to Mediapro for the privilege. Movistar+ is a pay-TV network in Spain and will also be able to show selected matches from the tournament.

Football fans based in Spain now have all bases covered in terms of their viewing options ahead of this unprecedented World Cup in November and December. Online coverage will be provided by Mediapro's new dedicated World Cup live streaming platform Gol Mundial, while subscribers to pay-TV giant Movistar+ will also have access to some games, and those not fortunate enough to have a subscription to either will still be able to watch 20 matches on free-to-air television via RTVE.

As well as showing extended coverage of every single 2022 World Cup game, Gol Mundial will also produce archive programming and on-demand content centred around the showpiece tournament.

While fans can subscribe for a one time only fee of €19.99 to get access to every game directly from Gol Mundial, paying Movistar+ subscribers will receive a login to use the system too.

Gol Mundial is expected to be widely available across all devices including desktops, smartphones, tablets and smart TVs, making it very easy for Spanish football fans to follow the biggest competition in the sport this winter.
